“5 star luxury at Christmas & New Year, an excellent villa!!”
Reviewed 3 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We have been visiting the area for over 30 years and stayed in many villa's, however, this exceeded all expectations and as a property manager I would have no hesitation in recommending to all. Our 3 teenage children and friend loved the pool which was heated and the hot tub was a must. As an extra bonus the weather was brilliant for the time of year and we have returned home feeling relaxed and energised!
From the moment we booked, dealing with Paul was an absolute pleasure, he knows instinctly what people want and the information he supplied regarding restaurants and facilities was invaluable, even to us seasoned travellers! The price over the festive season is higher but you get what you pay for and if you are looking for 5 star luxury at Xmas and don't want to travel too far (ie Far east) this is the place!.
Paul also recommends details of cheap car hire, we had a Kia which was a bit slow but the price and size of vehicle was good value so no complaints. The hire Company were also really lovely, met us at departures and drove to nearby hire place, all very professional.
On arrival at the Villa we were met by 2 lovely ladies who gave us all the information we needed with contact details, a must! I am happy to report that we never needed to contact them once as no problems at all.
The villa is a lot bigger than it looks in the photos and very well equipped. The kids all had plenty space and with a change room and ensuite for us we felt very comfortable. The 3 extra bathrooms are well placed and with an outdoor shower and toilet we felt it had everything.
The villa is within walking distance (aprox10mins) of many good restaurants, we loved Ranchos which had a superb set menu and great wine list. Brunos Italian is super with great take away and Amigo's was very good. Alberts in the port is a must for foodies.
Finally we spent New Years eve at Puerto Banus and had a ball, the restaurants were all decorated and the atmosphere electric. Thank you so much for a wonderful family break at Xmas. I can recommend this villa to all age groups, and family situations it would easily accomodate 9 guests plus baby. Happy holidays to those who visit in 2013. Best Regards The Olivers hailing from Newcastle upon Tyne.

Many thanks for the wonderful review of the villa etc. I'm so glad that all the information proved useful and helped you to get up and running so quickly. It was great to hear that the restaurants standards were all high at such a busy time of the year.
I'm delighted that the weather was perfect for you as this is one thing that can be a bit unpredictable especially at the end of December.
It was a pleasure to have you and your family stay and if you ever fancy visiting again you will be more than welcome. My management team asked me thank you for leaving the villa in nice order as they had a new guest to prepare the villa for on the afternoon of January 1st!!
All the best to you and the rest of your Toon clan for the New Year.

Thanks for the great review. I'm glad you had a spendid time at the villa and its surroundings. It was a pleasure dealing with you and your wife and if you ever want to revisit please give me a shout at any time. I'm sorry that the beds didn't feel comfortable. I have just replaced one of the single mattresses but the king sized beds all have expensive luxury mattresses and to date I have never had any bad feedback on these before. Maybe you are used to a different type of mattres on the other side of the Atlantic? I will however monitor the situation with the next half dozen guests and if necessary I will upgrade them. Once again thanks for your custom.

I am so glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay at the villa. Thanks for the kind comments regarding the manner in which I helped with the booking and thanks also for mentioning the magnificent stint that my management team of Lesley and Richard put in to make sure everything is in good order. The villa is always busy but wy wife and I managed to call over for a couple of weeks at the start of November and we have just renewed all the bedding and towels. We have organised a complete redecoration so that the villa is in tip top order for Christmas week and next year. Once again many thanks for the booking and if you wish to return please feel free to give me a shout at any time.

It was a pleasure to have you and your family stay at the villa earlier this summer. I'm glad the tips on places to eat, drink and be merry were helpful. There's plenty more to do for guests of all ages in and around Cabopino than can be fit in into a 10 night stay so whenever you want to come back I'd be delighted to squeeze your party in again.
Many thanks for the feedback on my management team of Lesley and Richard. They are stars and its great that their sterling work gets the recognition it deserves.
Thanks for e-mailing the photo's from the local beach bar I told you about. It made my day.

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 25 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Like many, we spent hours trawling the Internet in search of that perfect villa for our family holiday this year.

The Marbella/Banus area is a favourite of ours and we had never stayed in Cabapino before.

Upon arrival we were surprised by the shear size of the villa. Of course we had looked at the photos of the villa on line, but iin reality the villa was much bigger and really impressive.

We were met by the owners' management team who guided us around the villa and were a good font of knowledge regarding the local area. On day 1 there was an issue with the BBQ. I called Richard who came back immediately to rectify (I hadn't applied the gas cap properly)!

There were 5 of us that holidayed, myself (32), my wife, my 2 kids (4 & 2) and my mother in law.

We have rented villas on many occasions before and with the kids growing up my wife was especially conscious of pool safety. One of the key factors when we made our decision was the pool gate. The lockable gate to the pool gave us complete peace of mind regarding the kids safety. For the first time in a few years of holidaying with the kids, we were finally able to relax!

The villa itself was very spacious. Whilst there were only 3 adults and 2 kids, had there been 8 of us (2 families of 4) there would still be plenty of room to sit/relax/swim/chill out comfortably.

The hot tub on the 1st floor terrace was a personal favourite of mine and I used it regularly; perfect during the day or under the stars at night.

The amenities within the villa were over and above what I had expected. Everything was operated at the touch of a button. With Sky in the lounge and master bedroom the kids got their pre bed cartoon fix and I kept upto speed with the sports news and with WIFI my wife could ensure she didnt miss anything on facebook! The owner has thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable.

The local area is easily reached by foot. A 10/15 minute walk and you were at the harbour or the beach. The beach was very sandy. No annoying pebbles under foot. Although the sea was cold at first, the kids loved playing in its shallow waters. At the harbour, there were plenty of varied restaurants to choose from along with a handful of bars in a picturesque setting.

We simply could not find fault with this villa or the location. We will definitely be back!!

Many thanks for staying at the villa and leaving it in tip top condition. Thanks also for already re-booking for a further 12 nights in June 2013. Its great to have another guest returning so soon. I'll pass your kind words about my management team of Lesley and Richard on to them as they really are unsung heroes and I know that my guests can rely on them in the event of any hiccups. It'll be a pleasure to welcome you and your family back next year or any other time.

It was a pleasure to accommodate these guests over the Easter holidays. It is always a good time to visit the area as the weather is so pleasant at this time of the year. I'm glad my guests felt so comfortable at the villa but also managed to tear themselves away from it to explore some of the other fantastic villages and places of interest within easy striking distance.

“FANTASTIC LONG WEEKEND BREAK, WE LOVED IT!!!!”
Reviewed 2 May 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Just returned from a fabulous long weekend. Everything was seamless from our arrival when we were met by the lovely management team Richard and Leslie (who had shopped for us prior to arrival) and shown around the villa and given a full demonstration of villa facilities and security. As group of 8 ladies on a Hen do we were looking for a luxury base near the beach in a quiet location but not too far from the nightlife of Marbella and Puerto Banus. The Villa is of an exceptionally high standard and having organised this trip for the Bride to Be and friends i was delighted to see the broad smiles and hear the "wow's" as we explored the Villa. Totally agree with all of the previous comments from former travellers regarding the villa and its facilities, i personally loved the extra touches like the underfloor heating in the Master En-suite. The secure, private garden and pool area is fabulous and bathed in sunshine the whole day, and the outdoor living space is perfect for a glass of champers before venturing out of an evening or a hot tub before bed. Cabopino is delightful with a lovely sandy beach and 2 great beach bar/restaurants, perfect for that ice cold beer a light snack and an easy stroll over the dunes or by road. We ate out at La Despensa and Alberts and were well looked after and Julie's Bar was a good spot for a pre-dinner glass of fizz or Sangria. After our rather heavy but exceptionally fun 'hen night' in Puerto Banus we woke to torrential rain on Sunday, the sore heads were soothed by what can only be described as an immense Sunday Roast at Alberts.... would highly recommend even without a hangover!!! Everyone in our party said that they would recommend this villa and would be delighted to return either with friends or family groups. I would like to thank Paul Sparkes who was a delight to deal with, allowing us a late check out and providing me with all the information, help and reassurance necessary to make this a fantastic trip (even though we booked late after a horrible experience when another villa owner double booked us and cancelled) We will be back and thanks again from Amanda (Bride to Be) Juliette , Lisa, Anita, Abigail, Vicki, Julia and Jane x

I'm delighted that the villa and its surroundings proved to be such a with the Bride to Be and the rest of the gang especially after their Hen Party weekend plans looked in tatters after another villa owner had let them down with their original planned accommodation at the last minute. Thankfully that cancellation proved to be a blessing and this has enabled my guests to discover the full beauty of Puerto Cabopino along with its fantastic positioning for a lazy beach type holiday that is only a short taxi ride away from the nightlife of Puerto Banus and Marbella.
It was great for my guests to mention my management team of Richard & Lesley in dispatches as they work really hard to keep the villa in tip top shape throughout the year and their effort and attention to detail has ensured that a good percentage of guests have rebooked.
It's lovely to hear that Amanda (Bride to Be), Juliette, Lisa, Anita, Abigail, Vicki, Julia & Jane had such a great time at the villa and they will be welcomed back at any time.
